Today I dumped the two PALs from a working bootleg of Cabal.Original devices were two secured PAL16L8 which I reversed and successfully tested onto GAL16V8.
‘Rod_Wod’ sent in dump of the unique PAL from a FixEight PCB.Original device was an unsecured PALCE16V8H, dump has been successfully tested by him onto a same device and a GAL16V8 too.Thanks again to him.
We have some new dumps from an unusual arcade hardware called High Rate DVD, a DVD-based mahjong system released by Nichibutsu in different volumes, you can read more about here:
256KB binary dumps have been provided by ‘system11’ on Dumping Union list, I took care of reversing them to GAL16V8 targeting devices.Each PAL (identified by a colored stripe or dot on chip) is shared among more than a volume and other Mahjong games too, you will find info on database.Thanks to ‘system11 who also successfully tested dumps back on hardware.
New PAL dumps today.We have the ones from :
- Poosho Poosho.Game was unemulated until I spotted a PCB and bought it thanks to Dumping Union donations.Game will be included in next MAME release.Device was a secured PALCE22V1o which I reversed into a GAL22V10.
- Multi Game III.This is an hacked clone of the Nintendo Play-Choice system but hardware is based on the Famicom/Nes home console, you can select 21 games.Devices were three in total, I reversed them in GAL devices ( GAL20V8 and GAL22V10 replacements available for the original PAL20L8)
- Cross Blades (Japanese release of Blade Master!).The game runs on Irem M92 hardware, device was a secured PAL16L8 (labeled ‘M92-D-3J-‘ @IC26 on ROM board) which I reversed and successfully tested in a GAL16V8
A quick PAL update today.
‘coolmod’ sent it a dump from a Bagman PCB, device is an unlocked PAL16R6.Since his PCB is faulty we have no means to test a GAL16V8 replacement so we mark this dump as “assumed working”.Thanks to him anyway.
I redumped the PAL marked ‘SYS87B-3’ (@8D on CPU board) from an Ordyne PCB (Namco System 2 hardware) and successfully reversed and tested into a GAL22V10.This replaces the native PAL12L10 dump we had.
